Complications associated catheterization

Catheterization is characterized as a painful process. The insertion and also removal of poorly lubricated catheters can cause friction between the urethral walls and the surface of the device, which is although not only painful for the patient but can be also, lead to the narrowing of the urethra, bleeding, and infection. Thus, special care is required during catheterization to prevent urinary tract infections (UTIs) and catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs).
